Facts about Xena

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Xena is another one of our Lucky 7 dogs, rescued from a breeder going out of business - she's a favorite of the volunteers and vet staff. This girl is 11 years old, and is absolutely a darling and one of the sweetest dogs we've ever met - loves kisses and cuddles and gets along with other dogs (so far, she has met her foster brother cocker spaniel, a neighbor's friendly pit bulls through a fence, and another neighbour's chihuahua mix, and has been very friendly and submissive with all of them.)

Xena spends most of the day calm and resting, but takes an interest in her surroundings, and enjoys being outside. She can be a picky eater, and her foster found that she likes pureed vegetables with some finely chopped chicken or minced beef. She's a princess now! She deserves it, after the life she's had up until now.

Xena is a beautiful long haired GSD girl, as you can see in the first photo, but unfortunately she was so matted and dirty, the vet had to shave her and give her a fresh start - as you can see in her other photos. Her sweet foster mama had pajamas made for her in case she gets cold inside with the A/C, as she's been outside with a big fur coat on for her whole life. Xena will be staying with her foster to get some good nutrition in place, and to help her gain some weight and grow her beautiful coat back in. Xena would be a blessing for any family, and she would show her endless thanks to you with lots of kisses and cuddles. Does Xena belong with your family?

About German Shepherd Rescue of GA

About Our Rescue Group...

German Shepherd Dog Rescue Group of GA (GSDRGA) was formed in 2004. We are a GA licensed rescue group and a 501 (3) (C) organization.

We are a volunteer based group who banded together based on love for this noble breed. GSDRGA developed to fill the need for a rescue network to cover shelters in the Atlanta metro area and immediate counties.

GSDRGA helps potential adopters find the right German shepherd dog for their family and lifestyle.

We are always looking for volunteerds especiually foster homes, that is our biggest need.

Our Adoption Process...

GSDRGA wants every German Shepherd Dog we rescue to become a beloved member of their adopted family, living happy and healthy for the remainder of their lifetime.

Anyone requesting to adopt a dog must complete an adoption application prior to consideration and agree to a binding adoption agreement at the time of adoption.

If you are in the southeast region and are interested in adopting a dog, you must travel to Atlanta to meet the dog prior to adoption. Only in certain circumstances will we consider an applicant more than 4-6 hours driving distance from Atlanta.

All adoption applicants are evaluated based on information they provide, while considering the personality, temperament and requirements of the dog they are requesting to adopt. All adoption applicants must agree to a home evaluation visit done by a GSDRGA representative prior to adopting any dog.

GSDRGA requests a standard adoption donation of $250 for each dog. This is donation is used to defer the costs of veterinary care, food and supplies needed to care for our rescued dogs.
